2017 JR. MISS INDIAN OKLAHOMA

Angelina Steinmeyer                      (Comanche)

Hello, my name is Angelina Steinmeyer. I am the daughter of Allison and Kelly Steinmeyer and the granddaughter of Carlotta Harjo-Nowell. I am the great granddaughter of Gladys Ticeahkie and Benjamin Toahty. I am a proud member of the Comanche Nation and a descendant if Wisisichi, one of the last leaders of the Quahada band.

I am 15 years old and I live in Norman, Oklahoma. I went to elementary school at Hugh Bish, in Lawton where I maintained a 4.0 from 1st grade through 5th grade. I went to MacArthur middle school also in Lawton where I maintained a 4.0 from 6th grade to 7th grade when I began my adventure in homeschooling. I have since maintained a 4.0 grade status since I began homeschooling. My course-load for this semester includes Traditional Irish/Bluegrass Violin, Cantonese language and writing, Comanche Language, and all of my core classes (Geometry, English, Chemistry, and History). When I graduate High School, I plan on attending the University of Oklahoma where I will major in Skeletal/Biological Anthropology with a specialization in paleopathology. 

In my free time, I am currently a recommended black belt at Norman Martial Arts where I am on the black belt performance team. I specialize in a combination of Taekwondo and Jiu-Jitsu. I recently won both 2nd place in forms and 2nd place in sparring at a state-wide tournament between individuals practicing many different disciplines.

I am a volunteer at Norman Public Library West where I have worked since 2016 shelving books, setting up enrichment programs, helping others, and helping with “Storytime” which is a program for toddlers and babies which provides them with a base to begin understanding how to read and speak.

In the Fall and Spring seasons I also work for the Norman Youth Soccer Association where I have been a referee for three years. During my referee career I have been and active referee in eight competitive tournaments. I began playing soccer in Kindergarten and have played competitively and recreationally ever since.

I am an active member of the group, Matriarch that focuses on empowering indigenous women and enriching Native communities.  During my time around these wonderful ladies I have learned the real beauty and importance in supporting and empowering other Indigenous women. My Matriarch aunties have taught me what it means to my community for me to be a strong, resilient, respectful, and humble Comanche woman. 

I love being Comanche and my culture! I am an avid beadworker and I enjoy making regalia for my family and myself. I recently began learning how to sew and have been focusing on leaning how to make my own dresses and ribbon skirts.  Every Thursday I attend Comanche language classes in Oklahoma City at the Comanche Nation Outreach office. Spending this time with Sam and the ladies of the class has been a real blessing in my life.

My family and I are members of both the Comanche Reformed Church in Lawton, OK and of Norman First American Methodist Church of Norman, OK. I hope you to see you during my reign and I promise to fulfill the expectations and procedures that comes with being the good-will ambassador of the Oklahoma Federation of Indian Women and a representative of all 39 tribes in the state of Oklahoma. Thank you for your support in helping me attain my dream! Udah!
